Liverpool has taken a new form and style ever since the presence of German master tactician, Jurgen Klopp to the Anfield club.
Tagged the “normal” one, Jurgen Klopp has been able to improve the Liverpool style of play, integrate the youth system and generally making Liverpool a more threatening side.
Tragically, up until now, as glamorous as his team looks, they have only bettered their playing style and not necessarily gotten trophies as they remain without a domestic or European trophy since 2006, a whopping 12 years, and have not won a top-flight league in 27 years.
Since Klopp’s arrival at Anfield almost three years ago, Liverpool have improved drastically thus earning themselves numerous finals, and losing them too!
Their losing streak started with losing the 2013-2014 premier league trophy by 2 points behind eventual leaders Manchester City (although that was with a different coach Brendan Rodgers).
Their losing spell with Klopp first came as they lost the 2015-2016 Europa league 1-3 to Sevilla, they went on to lose the Carling (Carabao) Cup final to Manchester City in 2016 and most recently, they lost the 2017/2018 champions league to Real Madrid with their main goalkeeper, Loris Karius costing them two of the three goals conceived.
Liverpool seems to be past that now as this year alone, they have spent over 280 million pounds with the bulk of them coming during this summer transfer window by getting the most expensive goalkeeper in history in Alisson Becker for £65m.
They have likewise included the services of the likes of Fabinho from Monaco (£43.7m), Naby Keita from RB Leipzig (£62m) and Xhedran Shaqiri from Stoke (£15m).
Although Liverpool have lost some key players throughout the most recent a half year; Phillipe Coutinho and Emre Can ring a bell, however these flights have been enough secured with the signings that they have made.
Presently, out of the blue, Liverpool resembles the team that is most prepared to challenge Manchester City for the Premier League this coming season. Chelsea, with the difference in various coaching faculty and simply the one outstanding signing in Jorginho from Napoli for £50m may think that it’s difficult to be contenders for the League this season.
Manchester united seems to be not so united as Jose Mourinho has been sulking over not getting the team he wants and telling fans to expect the same United team as last season. Tottenham Hotspur, the quiet spenders, have not made any buzz this transfer window and Arsenal won’t be under as much pressure to contend for the title as they just witnessed the end of an era for their ex-Coach Arsene Wenger for Unai Emery and a partial overhaul of their players.
With their new and improved (and expensive) side, Liverpool have made a bit more than a statement regarding their intentions this season but have to bring in their A game from the get-go to be taken as serious title contenders.
